Race Sponsorship Benefits

We are very excited about your interest in sponsoring the Shoney’s® Family Fun Run. One hundred percent of the event’s proceeds benefit the Nashville Police Support Fund, a component of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee. The fund provides tuition assistance to police officers seeking social-science related college degrees. Nearly $200,000 has been raised by Shoney’s over the past nine years.

Presented by Shoney’s,® this family-friendly event will include a 5K run/walk, kids’ activities, entertainment and award ceremony. The Fun Festival will feature a Kids’ Zone with FREE activities for the kids, including giant inflatables, face painting, balloon artists, random prize drawings, interactive demonstrations by the Nashville Police Department, exhibitors and much more!

This event will be staged outdoors in downtown Nashville, Victory Avenue, Nissan Stadium, Lot T (adjacent to the Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge). Complimentary fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, biscuits and beverages will be available for run participants at the finish line. During the festival, food and beverages from Shoney’s® will not be sold, instead, donations will be readily accepted and all monies raised will benefit the Nashville Police Support Fund.

The 5K run/walk registration begins at 7:00 a.m. Come for the run and stay for the fun, which lasts until 11:00 a.m.
